Greetings SeaMonkey Families,
My name is Sam Ornstein and I am thrilled that my 7th year as a SeaMonkey has begun. As I began to prepare for my upcoming Bar Mitzvah, I was asked to think about something in which I am grateful for and how I could show my gratitude. I am truly grateful for being a part of this amazing swim league. I have learned what it means to meet individual goals and strive for team goals. I have gained good sportsmanship skills and love for a sport that will always be a part of my life. I would like to show my gratitude by sponsoring a Swim-A-Thon as my Bar Mitzvah Project. That’s where you come in; I am looking for teammates that would like to participate in helping me raise money for a SeaMonkey Scholarship. The scholarship would help a family in need offset the cost of joining the team next season. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to show our team spirit and give back to our community.
Thank you all so much for your consideration,
Date: Monday, July 18, 2016
Where: Lyndhurst City Pool
Time: 10:45-11:45 a.m. (participants will exit practice at 10:15 for a break, including snacks & water)
Prizes: Prizes will be given to the top three participants who have raised the most money. (Everyone will receive a special treat for participating)
Attached you will find a copy of the flyer/pledge sheet. Participants will look for “sponsors” who will donate in one of two ways. Sponsors will either give a per lap donation that will be collected after the event or a fixed donation that can be collected before the event takes place. Please make checks payable to SEL SeaMonkeys.
We understand that some of the younger swimmers may be unable to swim for an hour. Any participant may exit the water before the hour is up and will be supervised in the pool area until 11:45.
Volunteer opportunities are available for any adult who would like to be more involved, including counting laps.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Mariah Ornstein @ 216-403-4092 or via email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
